Some of you have been asking questions about the photography exam.
As the time plan/tick list says, you are doing the following,
- This week-Development set and evaluation.
- Next week-Mock set, practice Photoshop edits and manual edits (what you think you are going to do for your final in exam conditions, to test this works whilst staff can help you and evaluate stating what you will change in your final set to improve).
- *YOU WILL THEN NEED A FINAL SET TO EDIT IN EXAM CONDITIONS*
- EASTER HOLIDAY
- Week before exams start you will do planning page (I will put on blog for you to fill in), test/develop ideas and complete anything in sketchbooks.....This is your last week of lessons and sketch books have to be completed...You will need to hand this in at the start of your exam time (and can't come back to it). You will not work with this again.
- 27th-30th April-cohort 1
- 4th-7th May-Cohort 2
- 11th-14th May-Cohort 2
You can take these at any time to ensure you have them ready as per the plan above.
You will need to take your set for your final, prior to your exam time.
During your 15 hour exam you will be editing on Photoshop and manually, this CAN NOT be done before hand and you would need to take your photographs in the studio before your exam time starts (even in cohort 2 or 3).
So, you will have to organise yourself as much as possible in the next week in case college closes before the holiday. REMEMBER your final set is the same as your mock set but with any subtle changes/improvements. (This could be you use a black background in mock but white in final as it is clearer. Or, you tweak the subject matter slightly-different models/objects etc).
This DOESN'T have to be a completely new idea.
The work produced in your exam needs to represent 15 hours worth of work, so this will need to be quite sizeable and all work as a series using the same techniques throughout.
If, you're not sure what to do for your manuals, try looking for manual 3d or installation ideas.
If you wanted to add a mood board of ideas, this will only get you extra marks.
Here are some ideas for you,
YOU MIGHT WANT TO THINK ABOUT PRODUCING ONE LARGE INSTALLATION PIECE OR A SERIES SUCH AS THE IDEAS BELOW.
